The Caveman Kid Kills People (for some reason)
9 July 2007 | by (Satan's Colon) – See all my reviews

MEMORIAL VALLEY MASSACRE is an 80's slasher flick in every sense of the word: low-budget film making, one-dimensional characters serving no further purpose than to be killed, and a paper-thin plot line revolving around a feral child in a caveman Halloween costume. Honestly, film makers must have loved the slasher craze of the 70's and 80's, since it had to have been just about the cheapest way to make money on a movie without having the actors copulate on screen.

In terms of general quality, try to think somewhere between DON'T GO IN THE WOODS and F RIDAY THE 13TH; this movie has several elements in common with both of them. In the case of MEMORIAL VALLEY MASSACRE, expect the standards to be low, even for a slasher flick. The setting is a campsite, Memorial Valley, which wilderness man George Webster (John Kerry--not the politician) is developing commercially under tycoon Allen Sangster (Cameron Mitchell, who should have had a larger role as he's easily the best actor you'll see in this), who sends his son, David Sangster (Mark Mears), to work under Webster. Add in a female love interest, a humble workman, and a group of exceptionally obnoxious campers, and there's the body count.

The slasher himself, in this case, is a kid (John Caso) wearing a caveman outfit that looks like it might have been on sale at K-Mart. This child was abandoned once upon a time during a botched ransom exchange and, we assume, grew up in the woods. Most of his kills are not very gory (or even feasible in some cases) and there is no actual nudity presented (although there is a wet t-shirt dance in the rain worth noting).

This is a good movie for hardcore fans of slasher flicks and nights of drunkenness. It helps a great deal if one looks at this movie as a comedy, as this is definitely something that could be categorized as So Bad, It's Good. As this is public domain, it may be available online for free.
